Launch of an awareness-raising video on gender-based violence against women with psychosocial disabilities
The documentary aims to raise awareness about the phenomenon of sexual violence against women with psychosocial disabilities, an issue that is still little known among the public.
To do this, the Stay Safe partnership decided to give voice – literally – to the women, the professionals and carers who share with them their daily activities and the obstacles they face. Only by talking about this issue, cooperating between formal and informal carers, and involving women with disabilities in the dialogue can the barriers of prejudice and discrimination that fuel violence be broken down. The video in available in English (below), as well as with subtitles in Spanish,Portuguese, Lithuanian, Italian, and Greek.
The Stay Safe project aims to prevent and respond to sexual violence against women with disabilities. All information on Stay Safe are available on the project website.
